Chelsea not put off by Dortmund’s valuation of Jadon Sancho – Standard

Sancho’s incredible Borussia Dortmund stint

Despite being just 19 years of age, Jadon Sancho is one of the top wingers in European football right now.

The Englishman left Manchester City for German giants Borussia Dortmund in August of 2017.

And since joining BVB, Sancho has already racked up 90 appearances across all competitions for their senior side.

In those 90 ties, Sancho has cemented himself as a pivotal member of Dortmund’s attack, netting 31 and assisting 42.

Sancho is having a particularly fruitful 2019/20 campaign, in which he has scored 14 and assisted 16 in just 23 league appearances.

The winger’s superb form over the last two or so years has also seen him rewarded with a regular spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Jadon Sancho attracting interest from Chelsea

And Sancho also looks to be attracting a fair bit of interest from some top Premier League outfits.

Throughout the 2019/20 campaign, the BVB standout has been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.

The fee that Dortmund are said to want for their in-demand star is believed to be around £120m.

And this fairly steep price tag is said to be the reason why Liverpool would prefer a move for Timo Werner over Sancho this summer.

However, in a recent Q&A, the Evening Standard’s James Olley claimed that Chelsea have discussed a move for Sancho, with the club not put off by Dortmund’s valuation of the England international, which Olley also claims is in the region of £120m.
